  • Bengals' Jeff Driskel: Will not need surgery
    By RotoWire Staff

    The thumb injury Driskel suffered in Thursday's preseason game against the Colts will not require surgery, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports. While that is surely a good sign for Driskel's health, it still leaves his future with the Bengals a tad cloudy. Should the quarterback's injury require a short recovery time, it's likely the team ends up keeping him on the final roster, but if it is still seen as fairly serious, the Bengals could be reluctant to keep him around.

  • Bengals' Jeff Driskel: Claimed by Bengals
    By RotoWire Staff

    Driskel was claimed off waivers by the Bengals on Sunday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Prior to adding Driskel, Cincinnati only had two quarterbacks on its roster. Driskel is unlikely to play this season.

  • Driskel was atrocious Thursday, completed just one of four pass attempts for three yards while throwing two interceptions in the 31-21 preseason win over San Diego. There were rumblings entering Thursday's game that Driskel could leapfrog Colin Kaepernick on the depth chart with a strong preseason finale, but he failed to deliver and now his roster spot is in jeopardy, according to the Sacramento Bee. There is always a chance that the 2016 sixth-round pick ends up on the 49ers' practice squad -- especially because his skill set matches that of head coach Chip Kelly's gameplan -- but his chance of making the 53-man roster appears to be soiled.

  • Driskel completed just four of his 12 pass attempts for 20 yards Sunday, but he showed off his rushing ability by gaining 61 yards on five carries in a preseason loss to the Texans. This snapshot of Driskel paints a perfect picture of what type of quarterback he is right now, an unpolished arm with athleticism. While his throwing didn't inspire confidence in San Francisco's coaching staff, he moved up the depth chart after Thad Lewis suffered a season-ending knee injury. With the way things stand now, Driskel will either start the year as a third quarterback or end up on the practice squad.
